We left Denver, PA, this morning enroute to our home-away-from-home in Arlington, VA, taking the long route via Gettysburg and Maryland so we could see more of the countryside - and a few more covered bridges.
so we didn't have a lot of time to tarry. A quick stop at Park Headquarters in Gettysburg to pick up a map, then we drove through the park on our way to the first covered bridge of the day -
See the vertical beam at the center of the triangle? That's the kingpost. It can't support a long expanse, so this type of bridge is usually very short.
If I'd realized that ar the start, we'd probably have skipped this one since I had to pick and choose time-wise and tried to get truss types we hadn't seen already.
Then magically stopped about the same time Addy stepped off the plane. Hope the dry skies continue for our long weekend in DC!
